Fiction. Latino/Latina Studies. Rooted in a Chicana/Latina/indigenous geographic and cultural sensibility, the stories in flesh to bone are concerned with borders of all kinds and the potential for transformation and healing. The nine stories write and rewrite "myth" from a woman's point of view, as they tell stories of women and children whose lives are shaped by the social, political, ecological, and economic disruption and violence of the borderlands.

"An original and authentic voice...with an original vision. A blend of indigenismo and folktales retold in a modern vein.... These stories at times seem to come from the clouds, from spirits of ancient ancestors, or from the oblique corners of the human consciousness.... A new and engaging duende is being born in these pages."--Alejandro Murguia

"If Chagall had written, he would have painted words in the fierce brushstrokes of ire'ne lara silva's stories. If Remedios Varo had told stories, she would have wound the tendrils of her magic the way ire'ne lara silva paints her world."--Cecile Pineda
